Really tasty sandwiches with fresh and finest products, quality food! Milkshakes are delicious. Service also is really good, we came here twice and really recommend it! Around 100 pesos for a sandwich, definitely worth it!

The Milano on focaccia is seriously amazing. If you're in Tulum make sure to check this place out. The fresh juices and coffees are great. The best place I've been in Tulum.

Amazing salads and sandwiches. Best cheese selection I've seen in Yucatán, lovely courtyard setting and a quiet spot to spend some time in. Gluten free options would be a great addition, even if it's just a potato or rice dish to accompany the salads.

We had a wonderful brunch this morning. Products are fresh, excellent . The kids had the panini (excellent !) we had fresh fruit salad, apple bread, chai latte, chocolate fondant. Everything was SO good. I also liked the decor, with the umbrellas, the bike. Definitely a great address in Tulum !

As a resident of Tulum, you learn to think about several factors when going out for food: taste, consistency, cost, convenience, and availability. El Gourmet has them all! The panini are always fresh, crisp, warm and DELICIOUS. I must confess that it's hard to order a salad when you can have sopressata and asiago on yummy bread, but their salads... More

I have lived in Tulum 2 years and for some reason I kept forgetting about this place. Now that they moved off the main avenita, it is easy to get to. I had a shake and panini. It was awesome. I will definitely be back for more. And the service was great also!!

So great to have this restaurant back up. I had my favorite salad just now. The deli fridge is well stocked, as before. Such a friendly place--Diego always has people laughing. I highly recommend, as before. I like the new venue--it is a bit less frenetic than on the avenue.

El Gourmet Tulum is a store specialised in customising the best panini and salad ever. We also have a wide variety of cold meats & imported cheese such as speck, bresaola, prosciutto, gorgonzola, fontina, emmental, parmigiano, among others. All our bread is daily baked to be used in our sándwiches and salads or to be sold on its own. Desserts are to be tried for sure!. Really good coffee, and the freshest juices and fruit water are prepared as soon as it is ordered! The freshness and love that are used in the production is what differenciates El Gourmet from other places! Come to visit us! You will feel at home!
